Smile 10 Gallon Iwagumi Red Cherry Shrimp Tank- Mountain Meadow (Tank Journal)

I bought this 10 gallon tank at Wal-Mart and the light bulbs are two 14 watt fluorescent spiral bulbs by some brand called Sylvania. I bought some giant hairgrass and dwarf hairgrass on eBay.The goal of my aquascape is to look like an alpine meadow. Doesn't look anything close to it yet, but it will soon . I returned all of my other plants and driftwood to Petco and got like forty-something bucks back. I changed the substrate to CaribSea Eco-Complete and put in these granite rocks I had laying around. My shrimp got brighter. Even the males are a bit pink. The new substrate clouded the crap out of my water, but it cleared up a bit when I took these pictures.

The centerpiece


What the tank looks like now. The only plants in there right now are micro sword and Rotala rotundifolia.
